No LA Noire special edition for you, gumshoe

She had breezed into my office two weeks ago looking for a missing game, a special edition of LA Noire. Not my usual gig, but I was strapped for cash so I took the job, running down every Google Shopping and eBay back alley I could think of. And then it was staring me in the face, right in the comments section of Rockstar's own website.
@LiL.A.King There won't be any special edition release of L.A. Noire, just the preorder bonus content with certain retailers as announced here: Also as mentioned, all that content will be made available as DLC after the game comes out.
She would be disappointed that the special edition had disappeared, if it had ever existed in the first place. I got the feeling she wouldn't like hearing the news that all she could hope for was some pre-order DLC. Not that it mattered to me. My biggest concern was figuring out how to pad the expense report. Beyond that, it was just another case I could take off the books.
